Thank you for pointing out the error in my intro sentence. I've fixed it. The score (75) on the list and in the video title and description is correct.

FYI to those who use the BU Exams for practice, several people have created useful tools over the years for automatic scoring and record keeping. They are available on the BU Exams page, and the direct links are also below. Check them out.

Excel spreadsheet file
basic online webapp
full-featured online webapp
online webapp for practicing selected drills

I hope some people find these tools helpful,
Dave

If you are looking for a New Year's Resolution, consider improving your game by putting in some dedicated practice with the BU Exams. If you do, please post your scores (and videos if available) to give yourself something to beat in future years.

Good luck,
Dave

FYI, the BU just announced another Exam challenge with money prizes, and I hope some of the participants in this thread will take a shot at the cash.

Here it is: $4000 Billiard University (BU) Exam I 100 Challenge.

You just need to post a video of yourself taking BU Exam I (Fundamentals Exam). There is no cost to enter. We are paying out $4000 to the top three scores (including a $500 bonus available for a perfect score of 100).

I hope some AZB'ers win some of the money. I just posted a video with a score of 82 to give you guys something to beat. My goal is to reach 90 before the end of the contest, and I really hope somebody (maybe a pro) can post a perfect score of 100. Hopefully, the $2500 top prize is high enough to attract some top players, given that no travel or other expenses are required.

The BU Exams are excellent practice and I always feel my game elevate a little when I dedicate focused practice time to the Exams.

Good luck and have fun,
Dave

Great that you are doing this. Your instructions say the contest begins on May 15, but you have scores posted already. Do any submissions prior to May 15 count?

No. There is still 2nd and 3rd place. However, you would guarantee yourself $2500, assuming the video is legitimate and abides by the rules.

I look forward to seeing the video of your perfect score,
Dave

I broke my Exam I PR today! I topped my previous best 85 with an 87, working on my entry to the $4000 Billiard University (BU) Exam I 100 Challenge. I've updated my score and video link below (and on the first post of the thread). I hope other AZB'ers will get motivated to take a stab at the cash. My goal is to reach 90 before the end of the contest in August. I think I can do it, but it won't be easy.

Good luck,
Dave

New PR - 03-28-2018, 07:15 PM

I had a little time today so I decided to run through exam 1 to see what I need to work on most and set a new PR of 76! My scores were; 10, 9, 8, 8, 8, 7, 11, 15. The wagon wheel ate my lunch. I feel more confident that Iíll at least break into the 80ís for the exam challenge now.

Honestly, I feel like 10ís on the first 6 drills are within reach if I dedicate the practice time. Obviously I need LOTS of work on the wagon wheel.

I didnít have the camera rolling since I was just doing a quick run through, so I donít expect this to change my current posted exam 1 scoreójust wanted to share. But itís a nice confidence booster. Iím kind of excited now for when I can really get at it here in a few weeks and put in some time.

Congratulations on your new Exam I PR! When you get another good score on video, please post the info here and submit it to the $4000 BU Exam I Challenge. 76 would currently be in 2nd place, which is worth $1000 (if nobody tops your score).

FYI, I've updated your score and added a link to your post.

I look forward to seeing how much higher you can push your Exam I PR (on video).

Good luck,
Dave

I broke my Exam I PR today, topping my previous best 87 with an 88 while working on improving my entry to the $4000 Billiard University (BU) Exam I 100 Challenge. Here's the new video.

I've updated my info below and on the first post of the thread. I hope other AZB'ers will get motivated to take a stab at the Challenge cash or just post their scores and videos here as many other AZB users have.

Good luck,
Dave
